Henderson Libraries adjusts hours to stretch library access

Paseo Verde Library to open on Mondays beginning Sept. 8

HENDERSON, Nev. – On July 17, the Henderson Libraries Board approved changes to library branch hours, beginning on Monday, Sept. 8. Changes include the return of Monday hours to the Paseo Verde Library and slight adjustments to the Green Valley and James I. Gibson library branches. All changes were based on patron demand and neighborhood use of the libraries.

All the Henderson Libraries have been closed on Mondays for nearly two years due to lack of funding.  While the library district still does not have sufficient funding to truly expand hours of service, some adjustments to the schedule help provide access to library service for as many patrons as possible.

The Paseo Verde Library, located at 280 S. Green Valley Parkway at the 215 Beltway, will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.

The Green Valley Library, located 2797 N. Green Valley Parkway at Sunset Road, will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

James I. Gibson Library, located at 100 W. Lake Mead Parkway near Boulder Highway, will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

The Heritage Park Senior Facility Library, at 300 S. Racetrack Road, hours will remain with self-service hours for seniors ages 50 and older from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. Library staff will still be available at this location from 8 a.m. to noon on Thursdays.

The Green Valley and Gibson branches will remain closed on Mondays, and all branches are closed on Sundays.

Established in 1943 as a single library in Downtown Henderson, Henderson Libraries operates four locations throughout Henderson. Henderson Libraries cooperates with other public libraries in Southern Nevada, the Nevada System of Higher Education, the Clark County School District and all other libraries around the state to provide quality service for Nevada’s residents.
